  1. Chance The Rapper Explains Illness, May Need Surgery
    Last weekend we learned that hip-hop phenom Chance The Rapper had been hospitalized after falling ill and thus was unable to repeat his triumphant set from Coachella’s first weekend during the festival’s second iteration. Last night Chance’s Twitter posted a letter from his manager detailing the circumstances of the illness and the prognosis. In short, [...]

  2. Watch Some Teasers For Best Coast’s Newly Completed Third Album
    Last year Best Coast released Fade Away, which at seven tracks was something like the group’s third album but was dubbed a “mini-album.” In an interview around that time, Bethany Cosentino said she was hoping to have Best Coast’s real third album out by the spring. It’s springtime now, and the album isn’t out yet, [...]

  3. Pixies Soundtrack Apple’s “Gigantic” iPhone Commercial
    If the 2014-edition Pixies are in full cash-in mode, which seems like a definite possibility, then it is absolutely no surprise to see them licensing their songs to gigantic corporations. But Apple’s new iPhone commercial, which uses “Gigantic” to highlight the phone’s musical capabilities, is extremely artful as far as these things go. Please no [...]

  4. tUnE-yArDs – “Water Fountain” Video
    The playground-stomping “Water Fountain” gets an appropriately child-friendly video, with Merrill Garbus acting as our kooky schoolteacher in a zany after-school special. There’s an overabundance of ideas in the video, from a potato-wielding scientists to a trippy 8-bit interlude. It’s confusing and schizophrenic and proudly operates in a world where everyone is a caricature and [...]

  5. James Franco & Seth Rogen Wisely Decline To Reenact Their “Bound 2″ Spoof At Kanye & Kim’s Wedding
    Last year, in making his video for “Bound 2,” Kanye West enacted a weird-as-fuck motorcycle-sex fantasy with Kim Kardashian, his fiancee. Hollywood stoner buds James Franco and Seth Rogen then recreated the video shot-for-shot, with Rogen playing Kardashian and Franco playing West, and called it “Bound 3.” This seemed like the sort of thing that [...]

  6. Watch Beck Cover Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies)” At Coachella
    At the end of this past weekend’s Coachella, Beck joined headliners Arcade Fire onstage to cover Prince’s “Controversy.” But that wasn’t the only time Beck nodded to Arcade Fire during the weekend. During his own set on Sunday night, Beck played a quick acoustic cover of Arcade Fire’s classic “Rebellion (Lies),” telling a quick story [...]

  7. Boston Calling September 2014 Lineup
    The Boston Calling Festival started last year, and this year’s edition, which comes to the city next month, boasts one of the most vanilla festival lineups we’re likely to see this year (which is some kind of achievement). But the festival is apparently successful enough that its organizers have added a second weekend later in [...]

  8. Watch Drake Lint Roll His Pants Courtside At Raptors-Nets Game
    Drake is taking his position of “global ambassador” for the Toronto Raptors seriously, especially now that the Raptors are in the NBA playoffs and not doing terribly. (The Raptors beat the Brooklyn Nets last night, tying up their playoff series at 1-1.) Drake has been courtside for both of the Toronto playoff games, taking fondue-related [...]

  9. Lily Allen – “Sheezus” Video
    Here’s the video for the new Lily Allen song we heard earlier today, the title track (and opener) from her forthcoming third album Sheezus. Apparently this is not one of the rubbish songs that have been serviced to radio, but the singer’s preferred choice for a single. She talked to Rolling Stone about its provocative [...]

  10. Röyksopp & Robyn – “Do It Again” & “Every Little Thing”
    Next month, Robyn and Röyksopp will release their collaborative EP Do It Again in support of their upcoming European and North American tour. So far we’ve only heard a short preview but two of the songs have already surfaced. “Every Little Thing” sounds like a drawn out ’N Sync song (in the best way possible) [...]
